My big photo project.

Many of you have known me since I started with my photography a while back, and have cheered me on as I tried to self teach myself, sharing a few pics along the way. So I just thought I'd share a small bit of news that made me feel pretty happy, and very thankful this weekend.

I had been working on a really big project that took quite a while to get ready. I was invited to hang some of my photos in a local store with a neighbor of mine who is also selling some of her crafts there. It took quite a while to pick out the ones I wanted to hang, and then to research, and learn how to frame correctly since I wanted to make sure everything was the best quality.

Well, I finally hung the finished products in the store on Oct. 7th, and was just informed on Friday that I had already made my first big sale that same week I hung everything!! It was a big confidence boost for me, as I was feeling very unsure this was even going to work out after all the time and $$$ I had put into this project. So now the plan is to add in some fine art greeting cards, and I'm going to attempt to squeeze in a 2012 calendar IF I can get it done. I am so happy this has turned out good, and very thankful to have such a supportive hubby to help me out along the way!

CONGRATULTIONS GERI!!! You have worked so hard and sacrificed so much to get to this point.

I hope that you will share a link to the cards and calendar so that we have the opportunity to hang your photos on our wall.

Thank you everyone!! I really do appreciate it so much! I will try to post the image that sold when I get on my other computer later on.

Botanyblack, that really is terrible that you had your camera equip stolen, what an awful thing!! I'd be lost without mine! Hope you can replace some of it soon.

Ok, here's a few recent photos. I have an antique/country type style going I guess. Hopefully they don't look to bad after resizing the files.

This is the one that sold first. This is actually what's by a neighbors mailbox just down the road from us. (It wasn't her that bought it though. )


My sister inspired this one, she just found out she's pregnant!


Antique rose.


These are actually my baby shoes that I found when going through some boxes.


A local old barn. One of my favorites in black and white.

Thank you Renee and Krissy! Appreciate the kind words!

I put together a couple really cool framed images today! I'm excited to hang these ones tomorrow. I bought some old antique framed windows a while back, and had my images printed, and matting cut, to fit in the window frame. Just finished two today, and they look so cool!! I took a quick photo with my cell before, and I'll try to post it so you can see later on.
